Mine are packed, addressed and ready to go. My local post office is open on Saturday mornings so I went there today hoping they might be open but suspecting they would be closed, which turned out to be the case. If they had been open I would have made the end of March deadline for posting; unfortunately they won't go until Tuesday.

I posted mine on the 28th, from melb while I was over for work, so they should be there soon. I forgot to include a self addressed envelope but I have one here that ill express post up today.
Apologies in advance for my print - its a stretch of the imagination to call it flat. First time with fiber paper and the iron helped but it wasn't perfect.

All prints turned round today but for Bob's. This will be Monday lunch time job. I'll PM you the postage cost, which should be no different from the past.

Some real top pictures. Two things to note, Shane one of your prints came through with a sticky bit on it. I can't remember who scored that. Andrew K there was one extra print of the Polaroid girl so I sent that back to you. I am pretty sure everyone got two prints from you.

Another round of very good pictures, which in my case drives me to do better in the darkroom especially for the next round sign-up in May. I must post my comments for both the last post card exchange and round 8 of this exchange.

Can't wait. No, I mean it; I can't wait:D But alas, I have to:pouty:

Who ever gets the image with the sticky on it get me a yell and I reprint it for you.

Postman has been! Very nice set of images

04-10-2013, 02:25 AM
Yep got mine, glad to see the amount of Foma being used. Now I know what the 111 looks like I think I'll get me some.
Great section of image have been made from pinhole to LF and different film, papers and colours. Thanks to all

04-10-2013, 10:08 AM
got mine too... haven't had time to have a decent look though!

Correction: the El Castillo shot was taken with an Ai-S 35-105/3.5-4.5 zoom and not the 50/1.4 as stated. When I travel as a "tourist," I take my Nikon F, 24/2.8, and the zoom. Don't know why I thought I used the 50/1.4 (as if all this matters).

Mine arrived today - great stuff. Very pleased with the two from Polyglot - the 45 IR image I had seen recently at LF forum and was impressed by it on the screen; it's nice to have a print. The colour print is also beautiful. Such a shame we rarely see true colour prints anymore. I had it easy for many years with access to roller transport RA4 machines where I put the paper in and got a finished print 6 minutes later. Drum processing always seemed impossibly laborious by comparison, but I might have to give it a go as it looks so good. I also like both AndrewK photos but particularly the pinhole one. I also like the SMBooth print, particularly the idea of reverse printing for extra softness.

I think I shall have to have a stern word with my local postman.

Finally got my act into gear and started the next round of the exchange thread.

Round #9

What I have still not done is comment on both this round and round 8 pics. Must do. Must do.
